Each year, a team of students is selected to serve as Student Ambassadors for Lake Land College. These students serve as official representatives for Lake Land College and assist the college by informing prospective students of the opportunities available to them at Lake Land.
In addition, they assist with several campus organizations and special college activities. To be an ambassador, students must be at least a part-time student, maintain a 2.5 grade point average and complete an application and interview.
This year’s team has been busy attending area high schools, college fairs and the National FFA Convention, providing tours to potential students, and hosting thousands of high school students at the college during events such as Career Day and Discover Day.
